I thought I had computer, but it looks like I scooped the Booby Prize with কম্পিউটার.

I don't know, it is difficult to be sure... Mine has more Google results, but yours shows Google images...

(darn automerged post...)

OK, I see a problem, can someone help explain?

I reg'd this term as Gambling: জুয়া
The punycode came out as xn--w5b2bybim.com
It got around 100 Google results and an image of a betting site.
UPDATE: Dynadot resolves it as xn--w5b2bybim.com. Domainsite resolves it as xn--w5b2ei4j.com and says it is taken, but has no whois match. When I plug xn--w5b2ei4j.com into Dynadot, it says it is an invalid IDN.

What is going on?

When I check my domain, I get this: জুয়া
Note that the dot or accent mark is lower.
This term gets 1 Google result.
However, the punycode is the same: xn--w5b2bybim.com

Any help or ideas on this?

Re: Some Bengali Domains

LOL.

Punnycode is NOT an exact science! I myself have helped DynaDot improve their algorithm. The punnycode translation algorithms have been evolving and debugging over time and are now almost 100% correct... for the most commom languages!

If you'll like a glimpse of an older generation punnycode decoder, try the http://www.idnforums.com/converter/ with Korean or a mix of Japanese and latin and see what I mean.

You'll better report that to Dynadot.

Regards, Jose.

Re: Some Bengali Domains

Thank you for the info. How did you resolve yours, blast? It appears that both Dynadot and Domainsite fail to recognize the punycode for the "correct" term as a registerable domain...

On a different note, anyone have any comments or evaluations of the other domains?

Thanks!

It looks like if the registrar is using the correct implementation of the conversion routines then it should not be a problem.

Re: Some Bengali Domains

Are there any Bengali speakers who can help verify these?

I got a couple more in the last few days, and I can't believe what was still out there:

ই-মেইল.com - E-mail.com

হিন্দু.com - Hindu.com

আবহাওয়া.com - Weather.com

ইন্টারনেট.com - Internet.com

Also, would anyone care to speculate on possible value?
